New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Nicole Atkins has released her new album today on Single Lock Records, a Muscle Shoals-recorded celebration of hometown summers on the Jersey Shore and the carefree sounds of the AM dial. At turns a French electro wonderland, an Asbury Park funhouse and a journey through her own lucid dreams, Atkins channels influences from symphonic pop to garage punk on an LP she's described as an "acid trip through my record collection." The results have garnered much pre-release praise:

"The best thing she's done so far." - Consequence of Sound
"Nicole Atkins is done playing it safe." - Rolling Stone
"Sultry...retro glamour." - Pitchfork
"It really evokes Nicole Atkins' spirit. She is one of those people who is so inventive in everything she does." - NPR Music
"Atkins' big voice is a clear star." - Stereogum

For the Italian Ice sessions, Atkins gathered a group of her "best musical friends" at Muscle Shoals Sound Studio - who just so happen to be Jim Sclavunos and David "Moose" Sherman of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, The Dap-Kings' Binky Griptite and drummer McKenzie Smith (St. Vincent, Midlake) - along with Spooner Oldham and David Hood of the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section. Co-produced by Nicole and Ben Tanner (Alabama Shakes), Italian Icealso features special guests Britt Daniel, Seth Avett, John Paul White and Erin Rae, and songs co-written with Hamilton Leithauser, Daniel and Carl Broemel.
